Yes, comments are disabled on her YouTube video. But honestly, why does everyone see this as a "problem?" I know it's common wisdom to assume that if you hide comments you're "scared" of receiving criticism or some other bullshit, but think beyond that please.
1) Comments enabled would just allow hate speech and actual sexism to persist because the internet has already determined that everyone hates Anita. No matter how thoughtful or constructive your criticisms might be, YouTube's 500 character limit isn't the best place to give it, plus it would be drowned out by the trolls and haters spewing negativity.
2) Her videos are also meant more as a teaching tool, not a vlog series, and as such are potentially going to be used in classrooms. Probably a good idea to keep nasty comments of homophobia, racism, sexism, etc off of the main source of the video. I think that's backed up beautifully by having her tell parents to preview the
Ms. Male Character - Tropes vs Women in Video GameI hate talking about Anita Sarkeesian, but primarily because there’s such anger induced hatred of the woman herself that people tend to gloss over what she’s saying and ignore the bigger issue by nitpicking her to death. That’s very frustrating for me because whenever I talk about her videos or so much as refer to her by name, the response is almost magical. Saying Anita Sarkeesian on the internet is like a magical incantation to summon trolls.Ms. Male Character - Tropes vs Women in Video Game1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It’s almost impossible to talk about the subject matter (which is the actual issue that needs to be discussed) without devolving into a venom spewing hate storm against the messenger (Anita). And remember, this is coming from someone who DOESN’T LIKE HER EITHER. Her views on “Sucker Punch” were so misjudged and ill informed that it’s almost comical. That being the case, I feel the need to preface this journal with some requests. Please for the love of god if you are going to respond to this journal

Obsolete InkingLately I've been doing work for DC Direct--the wing of DC in charge of statues, toys, etc. It's been a nice break from PRJ. The money is good, and it hasn't been soulless like I imagined. Corporate gigs can go either way--sometimes they want you to do exactly what "they" want, other times they want you to do your thing unencumbered. Luckily this was the latter.Obsolete Inking3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The rates for toy designs are broken down into three parts: you get paid for the sketches, the final pencils and the inks. For this gig, the inking rate was higher than my normal inking rate. It felt good, but then I realized that 25% of my fee was for inks. And it raised an unsettled concern that's been on my mind.
How long will inkers be needed?
In the old days they needed inkers because computers weren't yet being used in print. I forget the name of the machine that preceded the scanner (process cameras?), but it was low-tech enough that i

SWAMP THING: The Orchestral ScoreGot a weird treats for you all,SWAMP THING: The Orchestral Score3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years, whenever I've been intensively drawing a comic project I often felt the need the write myself some music. I've found out multiplying my creative output mysteriously benefit them all. There is, usually, no link bridging my Comic and musical world. Some fugues and some String Quartet sketches have been paired with Batman Incorporated for instance.
This time, being so enthusiast for swamp thing, I went and wrote the scored for issue 7 & 8. OK, not really, but I've tried to cover their thematic stuff in a 3:16 of Full Orchestral Music.
Here a breakdown of the cues:
00:00 The timeless mystery of the Green
00:49 Growth and fate of the Green Warrior
1:36 The Rot
2:00 A bit of actionny big battle for those who got bored until now.
May you enjoy this roughs mix.

Painting a Deity/godDuring painting an image of any deity/god an artist must remember that a deity as such is an intellectually emanated(manasi sristi) being. That is, each deity represents a particular and specific aspect of cosmos/God. And the image of deity is supposed to bring to mind that essence or the aspect of that particular deity.Painting a Deity/god2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are two distinct ways in which an artist creates his works. He proceeds from universal to the particular or from the particular to the universal. In the case of the imagery of the deity it is the first case. It is called Dhyatva Kuryat, the intellectual conception precedes the actual creation of work.
For example, in the imagery of Brahma, apart from representing all the lakshanas(symbols) like the four heads, four hands, lotus etc, one must make sure that the real essence of the deity is represented. Brahma is basically a Rajasik(active) deity always involved in the action of creation of universe. Hence any depiction of him as being extremely violent bordering

Knowing He is Not Guilty...Knowing He is Not Guilty...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When I was in fifth grade,
a man followed my brother home.
I remember being on the computer
in the office right by the front door.
At first, it was a frantic knock.
My brother and his seventh grade friends
were quickly getting off their bikes,
my brother telling me to open the door.
I took my time getting up,
thinking they had forgotten their keys.
claiming to be neighborhood watch,
followed my brother and his friends home.
He saw them playing tag on their bicycles
on their own school campus,
yelled at them for trespassing,
threatening to call the cops,
and when no police arrived
he decided to take matters into his own hands.
He followed them home.
In his car.
He tailed them, but they saw him.
They tried to avoid him,
but when they got home
he pulled up and got out of his car
and ran up to our front door.
Our front door.
He came to our front door.
He followed them all the way home
and came up to our front door.

This is a post by a user on reddit named BlessedBlogger, this was a response to a post made here: http://www.reddit.com/r/TwoXChromosomes/comments/124ej8/one_of_the_most_perfect_and_eloquent_explanations/

I developed really early (starting at age six) so I had to deal with not only boys, but adult men, saying and doing things in my presence that were really inappropriate and scary. I've lived all over the US, in big cities and small backwoods towns, in nice neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods and in neighborhoods of all different cultures and I got this stuff pretty much everywhere.
Most men thought I should be flattered or grateful for their attention and a lot of them didn't understand why I wouldn't provide sexual favors for them even when I was very clear that I wasn't interested in them. They seem to think that I shou

Lived Long and ProsperedThe great Leonard Nimoy has died, age 83.Lived Long and Prospered2 months ago in Personal More Like This
There’s not really much I can write about the chap or his impact on sci-fi culture that you’re not already aware of. We all knew and loved him as Spock from Star Trek. Hell, I named one of my webcomic’s characters after him.
Nimoy never forgot about his fans, either, and how it is they who ensured his lasting popularity. It’s telling that it was he who cameoed in the recent Trek films and not Shatner.
Being the awesome man he was, his final words to the public (by way of twitter) were “LLAP”.
“Live Long and Prosper”.

- 100% pure acetone (found in the beauty supply sections) make sure it's colorless, and cotton swabs. I used to use Windsor & Newton Brush cleaner, which worked okay, but acetone is less expensive and wiped everything off easier. Do not allow it to drip onto hard plastics (such as the body) as it will melt the plastic and release fumes.
- Cling wrap, painter's tape, and masking tape; these are for wrapping your doll's hair and body to protect it from being sprayed with sealant or getting scratched/dirty. If sealant sprays onto the dolls hair, the hair becomes coated in dried, white, sealant that is difficult to remove.
